Sri Lanka Technological Campus (SLTC), Sri Lanka

SLTC which was established in 2015 is the first corporate powered, research based and fully residential university in the country. We strive to be the “centre of excellence for the development of full student potential for the benefit of Sri Lanka and the rest of the world.”SLTC has five schools offering 26 undergraduate degree programs in the field of Engineering, Technology, Business Management, Computing & IT and Music.  All these degree programmes are being curated to meet the academic standards required by the Ministry of Higher Education and the University Grants Commission. The Engineering and Technology degrees offered by the SLTC are Washington Accord and Sydney Accord accredited, respectively.

The University has established three entities to ensure successful delivery. These three entities are the Centre for the education of teachers, the Centre for international and national collaboration and the Centre for Quality assurance.

The latter ensures that the student experience is maximized while maintaining the curriculum up to date and relevant to current and future trends, delivery of material is project-based and learning centred, adhere to national and international guidelines. In addition, the centre is responsible for conducting frequent student feedback surveys and implementing recommendations with the help of School heads and relevant management and academic personnel.

The external collaboration unit ensures the curriculum and delivery methods are in-sync with the national and international partner organizations. 

The Centre for Education of the teachers are responsible for ensuring and training the lecturers and their delivery methods follow modern techniques that amplify student learning.

The University delivers programmes through five schools. Each school has a board of study headed by the school head, responsible for the delivery, administration and development of courses. This board ensures the student curriculum is revised according to the guidelines and to keep in line with the changes in the world around. It also ensures the delivery of the course meets the Q&A goals including the change of teaching personnel and the improvement of teaching aids such as laboratories.
